YORK Knights have announced the triple signing of Francis Coggle, Jack Potter and Harvey Reynolds. 

Andrew Henderson has continued to add to his Knights squad with the additions of Coggle, Potter and Reynolds, adding an influx of youth into his side. 

Potter joins York as a half-back from Hull Kingston Rovers, having played for the academy side since the age of 16. 

The youngster has played one year in the Hull KR reserves before making the switch to York, saying: "I'm really excited. I think it's a really great opportunity for me and I really appreciate the club giving me the opportunity - I'm excited to get stuck in."

"As soon as I heard about it I wanted to come straight away.

"I think it's a really good club, really well run, they've done really well this year and hopefully I can be part of it."

Following Potter to the Knights is energetic half-back Reynolds, who also joins York from Betfred Super League outfit Hull KR. 

Reynolds has first-team experience for Hull, having featured in KR preliminary squad alongside former Knights Connor Barley for the trip to Wigan Warriors in August. 

Speaking on the move, Reynolds said: "Hendo sold it to me really.

"I really like the direction of the Club, the way its going.

"I think it's a great opportunity for me to develop as a player, I can't wait to get started."

"The facilities are great here and the lads are great - they work hard for each other and I want to be a part of it.

"You need players like that when you're playing."

Last but not least, York have added Coggle to their squad from Super League outfit Castleford Tigers. 

Coggle, who features at centre or on the wing, began his career with Hull KR before going onto play amateur rugby league at the conference for Beverley, before going on to join Castleford's reserve side in 2020. 

Coggle said: "I'm delighted to sign here with York, it's a team with big ambition and a good project that's well underway.

"I can't wait to get started properly.

"I had a season and a half there (Castleford) and I felt like it was time to move on and hopefully chase another opportunity."

Henderson was pleased to bring in three new faces after a hectic week for the Knights, with Richie Myler, Alex Donaghy and Brad Ward all penning deals with the club, saying: "I've always made it clear that at the end of the season, I felt we needed a bigger squad going into the 2024 season.

"To give us not only more depth but some more genuine competition for places at training and going into the season.

"These three young players became available in the closed season.

"I thought they all have something to offer, they'll be a great fit for our environment and we're just really excited that we can present them with an opportunity here at York.

"It's important that from a squad point of view we get the balance right of senior players, established players and younger players that are in their development phase.

 "Obviously, these three players will still be in their development phase as players, but I think they'll bring a lot of energy and a lot of enthusiasm and I think they've got some potential to work with that we can develop further here at York.

"I'm really excited to see what they'll bring to the team and to the squad and hopefully over the course of this next 12 months we'll see their game develop and grow and who knows they may have a longer future here at the Club moving forward.

"I'm really pleased to have all of these guys on board - Jack Potter and Harvey Reynolds both have gone through the Hull KR system.

"Jack is a busy little halfback who's got a great kicking game on him and also a very good organiser.

"Harvey Reynolds - the back-rower runs really good lines and looks a real athlete, an exciting young talent.

"And Francis Coggle, who we've got from Castleford Tigers - a winger/fullback, who for me has potential to progress and develop and hopefully will do in our environment.

"I'm really pleased to secure the services of all three and I'm looking forward to what they're going to bring to the squad in 2024."
